10 Things Disc Golfers Are Embarrassed To Admit To Non-Disc Golfers

Embarassing Disc Golf

We love what we do.  We’re disc golfers and we’re proud of it!  But sometimes we like to keep our disc golf idioms within our circle disc golf peers.  After all, non-disc golfers just don’t understand many of the things us disc golfers do.  

Here are 10 things that many of us disc golfers are just a little embarrassed to admit to our non-disc golfer friends:

 

10. We brag to our friends about owning a first run Buzzz AND a first run Buzzz Mini

9. Our phone’s auto-correct changes buzz to Buzzz and rock to Roc.

8. We all have that one friend who thinks buying new discs will improve his game. If we don’t have that friend, we are that friend.

7. We’re actually insulted when someone calls it ‘Frisbee golf’ but we hold it in.

6. We are seriously considering buying a mini basket for our desks at work. Those of us who don’t already have one, that is.

5. We carry wet wipes and a roll of toilet paper in our bags. Both get used.

4. We’ve planned out an 18 hole course in our yard using Google Maps.

3. Our phones contain more pictures of disc golf baskets than our families.

2. We can tell you the flight rating of our dinner plates.

1. We own over 100 discs but score better when we only carry two.

Lots Of Disc Golf Discs

 

Honorable Mention: Huck Face!  We all have crazy huck faces that usually look as though we’re forcing out gas, but the fact is most of us are actually proud of those crazy facial contortions.  Of course, we rarely admit that.

    I don’t get brand new disc’s very often but when I do it’s only right to sleep with it under your pillow the very first night, “if you don’t the disc will never respect you.”

      Yes totally! And the new disc always gets shotgun privileges in the car for the first week!

    If possible, the bag goes everywhere we do just in case we happen to be near a course with a little extra time.

    Whenever a disc golf is reading something and sees this “putting” we read it as, I was putting on hole 3. We even read it that way when it says, I was putting the groceries away.

    I don’t play all that often but a friend of mine got me into going and I pretty much sucked major ass when I first started but got addicted and wanted to go constantly and now I am not too bad. I love the game I think about it all the time!

      Sadly we’ll never hear the end of “Golf with Frisbees”, but I’ve learned to control that condescending eye roll

      Hadn’t thought of that. I’ve seen dishwashers, but that can damage plastic. Cold wash may be a good option

    When I’m on a road trip and checking out the scenery along the way, I’m plotting out the hole I would put on that piece of land, and that piece of land, and THAT piece of land, etc., etc.

    I buy new discs because the stamp is sick and I have to have it no matter how many of that disc I own already. The more the merrier just in case I lose one.
